that the departure of president mubarak will happen. he will leave. but the big question is whether obama and the u.s. administration have the end game in place. do they know what will happen the minute he leaves? do they know who will fill the vacuum? this is no gain. i know everybody is watching it on television, but it's not a movie. it's real life. and these are real people. and this is a very, very volatile and very unpredictable region. and we want to make sure that whatever happens in egypt next is for the best for the egyptain people and the stability of the region. this could be mubarak's last weekend, but it could be egypt's last weekend of stability. and i think that this should be managed cautiously, gradually and carefully to assure that when mubarak leaves, there is a credible regime in place, which will, indeed, bring the egyptain people the democracy and freedom that they wish and they deserve. megyn: more and more some are focusing on elbaradei, who was a u.n. weapons' inspector that went into iran. he said there was nothing to worry about. when he got out, other weapons' inspector
